Kerry Katona recently revealed that she was afraid of becoming a “burden” on her fiancé with her ongoing health battles.

The 43-year-old shared that she has been dealing with severe anxiety, where she finds it "extremely" hard to breathe.

According to the Mirror, the former Atomic Kitten star exclusively spoke about her issues, sabotaging her romance with Ryan Mahoney.

In addition, she also admitted to feeling “choked up,” as she struggles to explain to him how she is feeling.

Speaking to New!, Katona explained: "I've always suffered from anxiety, but over the past couple of weeks it's been really bad.”

"I don't know what has triggered it. I kept trying to ignore it, but then on Mother's Day night it came to a head and I just broke down in tears. My throat was closing up and I felt like I couldn't breathe. The anxiety has stayed with me ever since."

She further opened up about her condition, adding: "It's been awful it can be crippling. There are times where I don't want to leave the house, but I force myself to.”

“I feel like I just want to curl up and hide. It's scary. I keep thinking, 'What is going on with my body?' I've been in tears saying, 'I don't know what's wrong with me, I'm panicking that I'm going to die'.”

Although Kerry said her partner has been a support throughout, she feels as though the star is becoming a ‘burden’ on him.

In addition, the mum of five also expressed concern for her children, explaining why Kerry feels she might have been letting her children down.
